Verizon Makes Pricing Changes to Its Prepaid Plan Lineup

verizon-prepaid-plan-changes
Verizon made headlines today as it announced new pricing changes to its prepaid plans.

The announcement comes a day after T-Mobile unveiled an unlimited LTE data plan for $50.

In contrast to T-Mobile's limited time offer plan, Verizon has discounted its unlimited plan. Instead of the regular $75 per month price, the plan is now available at $65 per month; with Auto Pay enabled.

Two other plans have been updated today. With the changes in place, Verizon's prepaid plans now look like this:

  • $30 per month - Includes unlimited talk, text, and 500MB of high speed data, mobile hotspot, and unlimited international texting
  • $35 per month (with Auto Pay) - Includes unlimited talk, text, and 3GB of high speed data, mobile hotspot, and unlimited international texting
  • $45 per month (with Auto Pay) - Includes unlimited talk, text, and 8GB of high speed data, mobile hotspot, and unlimited international texting
  • $65 per month (with Auto Pay) - Includes unlimited talk, text, and high speed data, unlimited international texting, and unlimited international calling to Mexico and Canada

In addition to the new plan pricing, Verizon has made it possible to get up to 10 lines on your account instead of just 5. You can now also add tablets and mobile hotspot devices at the same price as smartphone adds. If you decide to add an additional line of service, you can get a multi-line discount; depending on the plan you choose: 


  • $35 per month (with Auto Pay) - Save $10 per line
  • $45 per month (with Auto Pay) - Save $15 per line
  • $65 per month (with Auto Pay) - Save $20 per line

Make sure to read the fine print before you decide to sign up for one of these Verizon Prepaid plans.

  1. What is the status of data rollover with these changes ?

    1. Rollover data is gone on all Verizon prepaid plans unless you're already grandfathered in.

    2. Rollover data is gone.

  2. You missed some important points:

    Verizon got rid of all carryover data on all prepaid plans. This is a big deal.
    Verizon got rid of hotspot support on the unlimited plan. It was only 2G/3G speeds but it's still a big deal.
    The $50/$45 plan also now supports unlimited free calling to Canada and Mexico.

  3. Just announce it’s a $10 reduction. No need for all the fluff around it, to artificially sensationalize Verizon’s modest discount.

    1. The $50/45 plan had 7GB before, now it has 8GB. I remember the rollover working only once for me in a year of service. The Walmart bonus worked at the beginning. Apart from those issues Verizon is the best. Right now I'm with T-mobile and I hate it, will come back soon.

  5. The offer is not compelling. 60.00 on MetroPCS gets you Amazon Prime and Google One.

    1. Not compelling is subjective. If you have no Metro coverage, doesn't matter much. For me, my choices are US Cellular or Verizon. That's it where I am 99.9% of the time. A 60 mile trip in order to get service wouldn't be convenient if I chose Metro.

    2. True. MetroPCS on T-Mobile still does not cover about a third of the places Americans go and need cell coverage. Since most Americans go to these place, Metro is only a good choice for a small proportion of customers. But they are building out rapidly... give it a couple of years and then see if there is anecdotal evidence of Metro covering as well as Verizon.

      As it is right now. Metro is a good choice if you can put up with having no bars a lot of the time, and think "Amazon Prime and Google One" are more important than having reliable cellular service.

    3. Metro is "building out", lol, we've heard that before. Memories of Sprint talk are dancing in my head. They are still "building out" their Network too,after 10 years of the same, lol

      Delete
    4. Metro covers 99% of Americans. Trust your eyes, not the Tmo flamers:

      One big reason that Metro has TWICE as many customers as Cricket, and the gap is getting bigger. Remember that >80% of Americans live in urban areas areas and this proportion is increasing.

  6. I really liked the Rollover Data. Time to start looking for another prepaid provider.

    1. Rollover data is still available to account holders grandfathered in.

  7. Modest discount but less value for some (including me). No carryover, no hotspot.
